WPA-PSK (TKIP) used on Belkin router: how to enable key in Sabayon?


I was able to get my Sabayon 3.5 r2 wifi working by following some special instructions using ndiswrapper. I then enabled security in the router and lost the connection, obviously .

Now I would like to know how to get the connection back by inputing my security key somewhere in Sabayon (a Gentoo based version of Linux).

I can only find the WEP version of router security mentioned in any of the networking utilities. Is there a file or script I can make (or modify) that can allow me to use my WPA-PSK key?

Help is sure appreciated.

- Jerry

You can use the script I posted:
Init script for ndiswrapper with WPA support
That script should work on all RedHat derived distributions. It should be easy to modify it to work on Debian derived distributions.

I also posted this script:
wpa-connect script for Broadcom BCM4318 (AKA AirForce One 54g) for Ubuntu
which will work on Debian derived distributions and can be modified to use ndiswrapper.

Oh, goood. Way to go, David! I will get to work on that as soon as I swap out the Vista hard drive on this machine (I don't like to dual boot ).

Incidentally, this Toshiba has a Realtek 8187b wifi card, thus the special instructions needed, and kindly worked out and posted in the Sabayon forums.

Thanx again..
